Let’s face it, if you live by the beach, you are likely a summer person. Longing for the sun, the sand and the sound of the ocean crashing on the surf. But thanks to the magic of the holidays, you can’t help but dream of a White Christmas filled with caroling, hot chocolate by the fire and of course Nubble Lighthouse perfectly dressed for the occasion.
